A Primer on Politics

Number of pages: 326

Description:
This book should provide students with a basic outline of politics, what it means and how it works. The book will attempt to demystify the political world, and make it relevant by showing how things actually work and why -- how political systems divide the spoils and spread the burdens of civilized life; how economic and political systems intersect; and how approaches to politics have evolved to bring us where we are today.
